As 2017 comes to a close, it is time to reflect on the events of the year.
I have chosen a couple of photos from each month to share.
Hubby and I saw the New Year in at home...
Lobster Tails, Hasselback Potatoes, and Salad.
Teaching Family and Consumer Science at CHS
consumed most of my time and energy.
We took advantage of sales to replace the appliances in our kitchen.
We renewed our friendship with this special couple
at the SD Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Wine and Cheese Tasting Event.
My daily routine included an early alarm,
a quick stop at the supermarket for lab supplies,
and setting up at school before the students arrive.
We adopted Jasmine, a senior cat that had been looking
for her forever home for three years.
Hubby's band, Precious Cargo, was inducted into the
South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Their band opened the concert...
and received a standing ovation!
Meanwhile, at home,
Jasmine and Lucy were getting to know each other.
We broke ground on the garage additon project.
We celebrated my retirement after 38 years of teaching.
More celebrating with our friends, Alan and Kari,
when their daughter, Ashley and Logan were married.
And celebrating again, two weeks later, when Bob and Paula's
daughter, Megan and Dylan were married.
Our daughters and husbands came home to visit family.
We spent time in Minneapolis and celebrated Jake's birthday
on the Fourth of July at a Twins game.
We all traveled home to spend a few days
with family and hometown friends here.
This package came in our mail to announce
our first grandchild, due in March.
Hubby and I traveled to Colorado for his work conference
and to enjoy a little vacation time.
We were able to secure tickets to watch the NDSU Bison play
at all but one of their home games.
The mancave was finished and we were able to enjoy tailgating
and watching our favorite baseball and football teams here.
We stayed busy with our creations for Winterfest.
And we appreciated the cooler temperatures
and colors of Autumn.
This year, another successful Winterfest.
I enjoyed a fabulous trip to Boston to visit Emily & Jake.
We all love the warm glow of Christmas lights.
We spent our holidays with hubby's mom and sister.
We enjoy the time we spend with family
and our friends.
We are Blessed.
